The Saker Falcons in the Rescue Centre laid eggs!

26.02.2020
The past few days were fortunate for the team of the “Reintroduction of the Saker Falcon in Bulgaria” project, after the very expected eggs appeared in not one, but two of the Saker Falcon’s nests in the Centre!

The lucky families are – Pijo and Penda; Dobri and Valna. We are saying that the egss are expected as these couples were the first that started copulating this year.

Pijo and Penda are parents with long family history starting since 2015, when they raised 4 chicks. Through  the years they had different count of successfully raised chicks with a total of 15.

Unlike them, Dobri and Valna are a fairly new couple. Тheir story begins in 2018. For the two years together, they have raised 9 chicks.

We hope for the other Saker Falcons’ pairs to bring us happy news soon.

The “Reintroduction of the Saker Falcon in Bulgaria” project is financed by Mohamed Bin Zayed Raptor Conservation Fund and  Armeec JSC
